One order : One tree
With our large and steadily growing sustainable label portfolio, we create holistic packaging solutions. The focus is on the individual requirements of our customers, ecological aspects and technical feasibility. As a label manufacturer, we naturally process a lot of paper, and in terms of a holistic circular economy, the tree as a renewable raw material fits perfectly into our corporate philosophy.
Own commitment is very important to us. Therefore, since 2019 we have Beehives have been established onthe company premises , which are looked after by our employees. The beecareful project is a matter of the heart and company policy at the same time, and sustainable beekeeping is more important than high yield. In keeping with our corporate philosophy, we launched another initiative in 2021:
Trees can significantly reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and large-scale reforestation has the potential to greatly mitigate climate change. But forests can do much more, as they provide habitats for countless animal and plant species, keep nature’s water balance in equilibrium, have a cooling effect and clean our air, and last but not least, our forest is a recreational space for us all.
Through each individual customer order and together with national as well as international partners, we plant trees in Austria and in places around the world where reforestation is essential. We have made it our goal, to plant 150.000 trees by 2030. Every year, we provide transparent and clear information on how many trees have been planted and where new forests are being created with our help.
We are convinced: planting trees means believing in the future.
In cooperation with the state of Vorarlberg, we planted the first trees at the beginning of 2021. Around one third of the trees we plant grow in native forests. This project is supported by the entire company: once a year, CARINI employees and their families get involved and plant additional project trees with their own hands. They are supported in this by experienced forest experts who select tree species that are optimally suited to the specific location.
However, reforestation is also a global issue. Through NGOs such as the international children’s and youth initiative “Plant-for-the-planet”, Wells for Zoë or Mama Earth, we are currently supporting various projects in Mexico, Malawi and the Philippines with our initiative 1:1 – one order, one tree. 100% of the financial support goes to the respective projects.
The Gulf of Davao is located on the eastern side of the island of Mindanao (Philippines) and its water area is twelve times larger than Lake Constance. The huge bay provided food fish for more than three million people more than 15 years ago. Those days are over. Industrial fishing has completely overfished the stocks in the bay. The sensitive ecosystem of mangrove forests in the bay is also threatened. The mangroves have been cleared for decades for the construction of pile dwellings and the aerial roots processed as charcoal.
Why is reforestation important?
In the meantime, the mangroves are protected as they are the most important ecosystem in the world next to the rainforest. Mangroves protect coasts and reefs, but are also indispensable breeding grounds for fish offspring. They provide an unparalleled microcosm through the large amount of leaves that trickle down daily and rot on the bottom. A playground for worms, snails and maggots, which serve as food for the small fish. Above the water level flies and mosquitoes buzzing, which taste good to the birds. Then at the top of the food chain are the iguanas and snakes.
Reason area degradation: deforestation (for pile dwellings, charcoal,…)
Partner: Mama Earth Foundation, Inc.
The Embangweni area is deforested, and erosion and soil loss lead to flash floods in the rainy season and hot, desert-like climates in the dry season. Wells for Zoë supports the community in planting a variety of native tree species and pays mostly female native workers, which is life-changing for them.
All projects are accurately mapped using photogrammetric drone maps and hundreds of on-site photos (see website).
Reason land degradation: deforestation for firewood & building material
Partner: Wells for Zoë
When the children and youth initiative took over the first area in 2015, it was a sad sight: Vast areas had been degraded by deforestation, cattle ranching and the cutting down of economically valuable trees. Our restoration team working on this project and the attached nursery consists of over 120 people. Our employees plant an average of 5,500 seedlings per day and establish and maintain over twenty different native tree species. Our proprietary seed collection program allows us to incorporate native tree species into our restoration program that are important for restoring near-natural forests. Approximately 1,100 trees are planted per hectare.
The main goal is to plant 100 million trees in Yucatán, in areas that have been damaged by deforestation. The reforested trees help to sequester CO2 and – by planting only native trees in a mixed forest – preserve the local ecosystem.
Reason land degradation: Predominantly cattle grazing and forest fires.
In cooperation with the state of Vorarlberg, we planted the first trees in the Bleischwald forest in Bludenz as part of a holistic reforestation project. Together with forestry experts, we select forest areas and suitable tree species for reforestation. One third of the trees we plant are to grow in native forests.
Sustainable and not-for-profit, reforestation projects in community forests are designed to contribute to the common good while positively impacting our climate in the long term.
Reason for area degradation: overaged forest stand, environmental influences (pests, extreme weather situations)
Partner: Province of Vorarlberg
